Information on TicketMaster Verified Fan:

All those who register and are identified as genuine ticket buyers, not bots or scalpers, will be equally eligible to receive an Access Code. The selection process is randomized to ensure access to tickets is as fair as possible and is in no way influenced by a patron’s Ticketmaster purchase history. Those who receive an Access Code will have the opportunity to purchase tickets on a first-come, first-served basis on Wednesday, October 18. Because of anticipated demand, registering does not guarantee receipt of an Access Code, and receiving an Access Code does not guarantee there will be tickets remaining when you try to purchase. Access Codes will not be delivered until the morning of the onsale and will be required to purchase tickets.

Warning about unofficial ticket sellers:

Please be aware that unofficial ticket sellers may list tickets available for purchase before they go on sale. This practice is called ‘speculative listing’ and we advise our audiences not to trust resellers claiming to have tickets before they are officially released as these tickets are not real. Similarly, unofficial sellers may speculatively list access codes prior to the onsale. No codes have been generated or distributed, and you should not trust anyone trying to sell you a code.

J.K. Rowling Appearing on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ This Weekend

A new interview with J.K. Rowling will be airing on CBS Sunday Morning on September 24th beginning at 9am. Mark Phillips talks with Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling about the sensation of the London stage (and coming soon to Broadway): “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” The show is 90 minutes long and Jo’s segment could air at any point during the show.

This episode launches the 40th anniversary of the show. According to the press release:

America’s #1 Sunday morning news program, will launch its 40th anniversary season with a new set and an exciting lineup of stories that includes profiles of Shania Twain and J.K. Rowling, along with a look at the fall season in art, movies, books and music, on Sunday, Sept. 24 (9:00 AM) on the CBS Television Network.

The broadcast will mark the first reimagining of the signature set since CBS SUNDAY MORNING launched on Jan. 28, 1979.

“The new set is evocative of the one viewers have come to love since the launch of the broadcast,” said CBS SUNDAY MORNING executive producer Rand Morrison. “The goal is to enhance the visual experience for our viewers, while not shocking them with dramatic changes. The colors are refreshed, the building materials updated, and we have a bit more flexibility in what we can do in the studio.”

The previous set was dismantled and the new set constructed in place over the course of a week leading up to the season premiere. The new set (designed by Jack Morton Worldwide) is a round, multi-level creation that provides multiple positions for anchor Jane Pauley. Additional elements, such as thin tower video panels, will be added in the coming weeks.

In addition to profiles of country star Shania Twain by Lee Cowan and “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling by Mark Phillips, the Sept. 24 broadcast will feature Susan Spencer’s cover story on the trend in children being given unusual names; 60 MINUTES correspondent Lesley Stahl’s chat with author and bookstore owner Ann Patchett; David Edelstein’s preview of the fall season in movies; Anna Werner’s look at what’s ahead in art; Serena Altschul’s report on a museum filled with artifacts found by sanitation engineer; and Tracy Smith’s interview with Iain Armitage, star of the new CBS comedy YOUNG SHELDON.

A Celebration of Harry Potter Returning to Universal Orlando in January

Universal Orlando Resort revealed on Twitter that their fifth annual Celebration of Harry Potter will be taking place from January 26-28, 2018!

Members of the cast and crew participate in panels and Universal hosts a Harry Potter Expo where venders such as Scholastic, Warner Bros Studio Tour London and more share what’s new!

BBC Announces ‘A History of Magic’ Documentary; Exhibit Coming to New York

BBC has announced a new documentary, A History of Magic, which is based off The British Library’s exhibition opening next month. This documentary features  an interview with J.K. Rowling where she discusses items she has personally donated to the exhibit. Harry Potter: A History of Magic opens to the public on October 20th at The British Library. The exhibit will also be making it’s way to New York in October 2018, making a stop at the New-York Historical Society.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic will unveil rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection, capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories. Exploring the subjects studied at Hogwarts, the exhibition will include original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter illustrator Jim Kay – all on display for the first time.

And as it travels from London to New York, the exhibition will evolve to include US-specific artefacts and items from the collection of US Harry Potter publisher Scholastic.

BBC has released the following information on the documentary which will air on BBC Two. An air date has not yet been revealed.

It’s 20 years since J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first cast its spell on readers across the globe, thanks to the charm, warmth and imagination of its wizarding world. But Rowling’s fantastical creation wasn’t entirely make-believe…

To mark the 20th anniversary of her book, the BBC presents an enchanting new documentary, uncovering the real life traditions of magic at the heart of Harry Potter.

A thrilling journey through legends, belief and folklore, this film goes behind the scenes with the British Library as they search to tell that story through objects in their collection, in an ambitious new exhibition: Harry Potter: A History Of Magic. J.K. Rowling, who is lending unseen manuscripts, drawings and drafts from her private archives (which will sit alongside treasures from the British Library, as well as original drafts and drawings from Jim Kay) talks about some of the personal items she has lent to the exhibition and gives new insight into her writing, looking at some of the objects from the exhibition that have fired her imagination.

Readings from famous fans playfully recreates some of the best loved spells, potions and magical moments from the books, and, as we follow the process of the exhibition, we discover modern magic’s counterparts (from real life wandmakers to Quidditch enthusiasts). In doing so we discover an unexpected relationship between magic, belief and science: from the Anglo-Saxon spells that cure MRSA; to the so-called witches who pioneered contemporary medicine; to the ancient stargazers who first mapped the wonders of the night sky.

It was commissioned for BBC Two by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two and Mark Bell, Head of Commissioning BBC Arts, and the Executive Producer is Janet Lee. The Producer/Director is Jude Ho for BBC Studios.

Imagine being vulnerable and alone and exposed to unimaginable living conditions and abuse on a daily basis.

Imagine not having a choice – or a voice.

An estimated 8 million children around the world live in harmful orphanages. Many suffer abuse and hardship as a daily reality. Shockingly – 80% are not even orphans; they have at least one living parent.

These vulnerable children need families, not orphanages. Lumos has the proven solution to transform the future for children in orphanages.
